The Ups and Downs of Broadband

As we all continue to spend more time online this winter, our friends from Trooli are here to explain why an ultrafast upload speed is becoming increasingly important when choosing your next broadband package.

If you’re a photographer, gamer or already used to working from home, you’ll no doubt already be aware of the importance of your broadband’s upload speed – but for those that aren’t, here’s a quick overview on why it is so important.

Whilst your broadband’s download speed determines how quickly you receive information, such as how fast a website loads or how smoothly you can stream the latest blockbuster or box set, it is the upload speed that determines how quickly your device shares information with others, critical for video calls and file sharing, whether with friends, family or work colleagues.

Whereas providers typically advertise how fast their download speeds are (or “could be”….), their upload speeds tend to be significantly slower with a national average of 14 Mbps and many local areas receiving much less, partly due to the limitations of ‘fibre to the cabinet’ networks.

No matter how fast your download speed, slow upload speeds will continue to cause frustration – with video calls freezing or valuable time being wasted uploading or transferring large files.

Full Fibre networks, however, have the ability to provide ultrafast upload speeds in addition to the ultrafast download speeds they are famous for.

Here are 4 quick things that are better with ultrafast upload speeds.

  1. Sharing
    Whether you’re sharing photos on Facebook or videos on TikTok it is your upload speed that is doing the work, with YouTube recommending an upload speed of 53-68 Mbps for uploading the highest quality 4k videos.
  2. Video calls
    No matter if you use Zoom, Skype or Teams a fast upload speed will ensure you’re not the weakest link – keeping your picture and words clear and your contribution effective.
  3. Uploading Files
    Collaborating with clients and colleagues from home? Spend less time transferring files to the cloud and more time focussing on making a difference.
  4. Gaming
    Faster upload speeds bring more responsive controls and better gamers. Got a VR headset? Try it on a full fibre connection to really see it come into its own.

Trooli’s Full Fibre packages start with a minimum upload speed of 100 Mbps (300 Mbps download). To see what full fibre can do for you, visit our homepage or call 0800 358 7680.
